General Care & Maintenence of Worktops 

 
Guide to Do’s & Don’ts with Solid surfaces 
 
Do 
• Always clean your work top regularly. We would advise using mild soapy water, rinsed, then dried with a soft 
clean cloth. 
• Clear spillages on your work tops, wipe off using a kitchen towel. Many food products contain acids and 
colourings which if left, can dull or stain the appearance of your surfaces. 
• Wipe down your tops after use as this will reduce the risk of lime scale build up. 
• Always use a chopping board when preparing food. 
• Avoid impacts with heavy objects as they will chip edges. Place things carefully in under mount sinks avoiding the 
stone edges. 
 
Don’ts 
• Do not lean near the cut outs for the hob, sink or the overhang of breakfast bars. 
• Do not sit, kneel or stand on your worktops, they will break. 
• Do not put hot pans directly onto worktops it will damage them. 
• Do not apply excessive heat to the worktops of any kind it will damage them. 
• Do not place large pans on the back of the hob as they conduct heat to the splashback and can cause damage, 
discolouration and cracking. 
• Do not wind up the support legs on the furniture once tops are fitted. 
• Do Not leave acidic products on Marble surfaces as it will remove shine (Acidic products citrus fruits, Alcohol, vinegars, ketchups, if you are not sure wipe it off).
